I loooooovvve nail art, but when it comes to textured polishes, I’m not that experimental. I mainly stick to classic colours with lots of shiny top coat, or if I’m feeling ‘wild’ I’ll use a glitter or shatter polish. Textured nail polish is a huge trend right now and I was secretly desperate to give it a go! So, I was delighted to receive two bottles of the Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Textured Nail Polish in Cotton Candies and Sour Apple, the perfect excuse to try something different!
The colours are just stunning! Cotton Candies is a vibrant pink and and Sour Apple is a gorgeous pale teal – perfect shades for spring! The colours both looked so fun that I couldn’t decide which one to try first so I decided to combine them. I painted Sour Apples on my ring fingers and Cotton Candies on the rest.
I was surprised to find that the textured affect appeared on my nails pretty much as soon as I painted them! Before l knew it my nails were covered with cute little bumps that almost looked like tiny bubbles. They literally looked like I had dipped my nails in sugar! When they dried, I discovered they felt like it to!
The bottles suggest applying two thin coats and, in this case, the bottle ain’t lying! I’m not the best painter, and on some nails I clumsily applied too much polish and the textured affect wasn’t as neat or as pretty as the nails where I had managed to apply the polish more delicately.
I would definitely wear this polish again on a day when I’m feeling brave enough to venture away from my ‘safe’ shiny nail polish look. I also think Sally Hansen Sugar Coat textured nail polish would make a gorgeous contribution to a girly costume for a dress-up party.
So, if you’re a girl who loves to try all the latest nail trends, you simply must try Sally Hansen Sugar Coat, it’s the sweetest nail look going around!
